Basic Payroll Service
A fully comprehensive payroll service for your nanny.
When you take on a domestic employee, you become an employer and have to calculate tax and National Insurance for your employee, with all the legal and financial responsibilities that entails.
Whilst not particularly difficult, these are time-consuming and bureaucratic, and unless you are familiar with the details of PAYE, offer many opportunities to make mistakes. HMRC applies penalties even to inexperienced employers who are late with their paperwork and payments.
Why not let us take the headaches out of paying your Nanny, with our low-cost payroll management service?
For a small annual fee (only £144, for monthly pay or £240 for weekly pay, including VAT) you will be able to avoid the many pitfalls associated with running your own PAYE scheme and will be able to rest assured that you are complying fully with all relevant legislation. Your nanny can also be assured that their pay and tax are being properly and promptly calculated and dealt with.
If you currently operate your own payroll or are with another payroll agency you can transfer across to our service at any time. You don’t have to wait until the start of a new tax-year as it’s possible to move everything across mid-year. In addition to our normal registration documents we would just need you to provide us with a P11 working sheet which your current provider should be able to supply you with.
If you’re planning on paying your nanny using childcare vouchers you’ll need her to be registered with Ofsted. As part of this she’ll need to have liability insurance and will also need to have a valid DBS check. We do have a liability policy available for nannies which would be sufficient and we can also process the DBS check for you as an additional service.
Our Basic Payroll service includes:
- Unlimited advice and support
- HM Revenue PAYE registration
- All letters and calls to and from HM Revenue dealt with on your behalf
- Monthly payslips (weekly payslips available at additional cost)
- RTI online returns
- Statutory payments (sick & maternity pay)
- Holiday entitlements
- P60 and P11d at year end, P45 (when required)
- Complexities such as nanny-shares and tax allowance splits
- Employment contract advice and contract specimens
Please note, all employers will need to comply with the Automatic Enrolment rules relating to Workplace Pensions. With our basic payroll service we can show your chosen pension contributions on the payslip, but it will fall to you to deal with the Pensions Regulator and the management of the pension scheme with your chosen provider.
